6th International Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technologies
The increasing use of the Web as a software platform together with the advance of technology has given raise to new generations of Web Applications that become more sophisticated almost every year. For instance, these applications allow ubiquitous web access from stationary and mobile computing platforms, they provide individuals and collectivities with personalized and specific features, they support complex business processes, they are involved in organization-wide workflows, they exhibit advanced behaviors. Applications are now also built by composing services provided by third parties, often as a function of the place, time, and device being used to access it. This also results in the need of deploying applications for multiple users, platforms, and environments. Developing such web applications has remained a major concern that is common to both Web Engineering (WE) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) communities, but with different viewpoints, starting points and strategies to reach the same goal.
Since 2001, IWWOST has been an international forum for discussing state-of-the art modeling approaches for Web applications. This year, in addition to the usual topics of interest, we particularly welcome papers on new methods and technologies supporting the design of the user interface of Web applications. In particular, we are interested in Web applications supporting multimodal interaction, migratory applications letting users to keep the state of task execution through different devices, context-aware web applications: models, method, tools, case studies, etc.
We invite participants to present their approaches and reflections on the integration of HCI and WE methods, tools and techniques applied to the development of feasible and usable Web applications.
All submissions will be screened by the scientific committee for appropriateness with the workshop themes and format. Each submission will be reviewed by at least one member from the WE community and one member from the HCI community. Authors will be shepherded to tailor their presentations to the workshop rules.
